Hawks-Mavs swapping Doncic and Young

24 June 2018

Numerous players selected in Thursday night's Draft will be on display next month in NBA Summer League.

"Moms decent!" Iguodala tweeted to his 1.3 million followers.

With the benefit of a college structure pulled beneath him, 19-year old LiAngelo played pro ball in Lithuania where he averaged 12.6 points and 2.9 rebounds in 14 outings with Vytautas, according to Yahoo Sports. She also posted a selfie from Barclays Center on Thursday night. The 6-7, 218-pounder won Most Valuable Player honors during this past season in the EuroLeague, and also led Real Madrid to the EuroLeague title last Tuesday when he was named the MVP of the EuroLeague Final 4. As one of the likely top selections in the draft, Doncic's talent is undeniable, with NBA TV offering a profile of the 19-year-old native of Slovenia that indicated who his favorite player is: Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James.

Doncic, who can play as point guard or shooting guard, was picked third by the Atlanta Hawks but was then traded to the Mavericks for Trae Young, who was chosen with the fifth pick.

"This deal that we were able to get done, got done during the first pick", coach Rick Carlisle said. "Which team ends up getting the pick will obviously play a role, but Ayton's sheer productivity combined with his freakish physical tools are making it increasingly hard to keep Luka Doncic up top, especially after a somewhat lackluster month of February by his standards". Additional workouts weren't really necessary for the 19-year old kid who the Mavs believe could become a budding National Basketball Association superstar. He's got a very unique skill set. "I really wanted to go to Phoenix and be part of the Suns and get us back to winning".

"[The Mavericks have] been talking to me", Doncic said on the broadcast after being selected.
